Snuneymuxw First Nation territory will be the destination for people taking part in Tribal Journeys 2020.

The annual event, which sees indigenous people from B.C. and Washington state embarking on a journey in traditional canoes, recently concluded in Lummi Nation in Washington. Next year, the final stop is the Nanaimo area from July 27-Aug. 1.

“Each community will do what they call protocol,” said Snuneymuxw Chief Mike Wyse. “So they’ll be at our long house up in Cedar; each community will have their slotted time where they’ll come in and celebrate their songs and share their journey with the rest of the tribes from up and down the coast, so it’s quite a big event.”
